Police Chief Major General Rafael Guillermo Guzman Fermin has met with the sub-director of Customs, the president of the National Association of Vehicle Distributor Agencies (ANADIVE), the Dominican Chamber of Insurers and insurance companies with the aim of devising a strategy for preventing stolen cars from being sold to third parties. Guzman explained that the recovered vehicles had their chassis numbers and registration documents altered in order to trick buyers into thinking the vehicles were legitimate. Stolen vehicles were discovered at a number of dealers, including Perez Vargas Auto Import, Ambar Elias Auto Import, Made Auto Import, PV Autos, Arias Motors, Leo Motor, Giovamani Auto, Rotonda Motor and Hilaria Motor. Car parts sales points are also being investigated as many parts from stolen vehicles end up at these stores.(source dr1)
